WHO IS MICHIGAN HUB, LLC?:
Michigan Hub is a company whose mission is to drive rural economic development through locally produced low-cost energy that reduces the community's carbon footprint.
WHAT IS MICHIGAN HUB?
Michigan Hub is developing a 140-acre "energy park" that supplies heat and power, along with other onsite utilities, to industrial tenants located on its site and to eligible adjacent facilities in the Litchfield Industrial Park.
Michigan Hub is also providing in-state municipal utilities an option to comply with recent state legislation requiring local capacity resources to meet Michigan's goal of power independence.
THE PROOF IS IN THE POWER.
Power, heat and air conditioning represent a large part of industrial employers operating expenses. By providing power directly to its tenants and eligible Industrial Park manufacturers, Michigan Hub can eliminate the cost of using the Transmission Grid. Heat and Air Conditioning can also be supplied utilizing waste heat from the power generation process, further reducing costs.
The Michigan Hub Energy Park will also make certain alternative fuels available to facilitate Litchfield Industrial Park's migration from expensive diesel truck transportation to cleaner, lower cost CNG (compressed natural gas) and electric vehicles.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, Michigan Hub-type power plants reduce energy costs by an estimated 29% and carbon footprint by 47%.
Michigan Hub tenants can receive long-term contracts for reduced cost electricity, process steam, hot and chilled water for facility HVAC, natural gas and water - all available within a shovel-ready site.
Independent Barley & Malt, Inc. (IB&M) is a Michigan corporation established to serve the craft brewing and distilling markets throughout the Midwest. IB&M is developing a state-of-the-art, commercial-scale grain-processing facility.
